Can't verify google my business

I'm attempting to add my new business to google and am running into issues.  Valdez Saltwater Adventures is a new business that I have started.  It's a seasonal fishing charter/tour business that I run in Valdez, AK in the summer months, so I don't have a physical address in Valdez, but want it to show up on google in Valdez since that is where I operate the business. I attempted to put in an address at the dock and then specify which dock I park at, but for the verification step it says I will receive a letter in the mail for this address.  Is there anyway I can get my business on the map in the appropriate location?

Hi @William E


If you do not own or have the authority to represent that address, then you need to use the office address or home address. 


Select I serve customers at their location, which hides the home address and select the postcode area as the area you serve customers in.


If you do have authority to represent the dock as a business address, then request post card, when the postcard has not arrived after 14 days, then contact business support to help complete verification. How to Contact Google Business Support

I've have been trying to add my business to google business and I keep get suspended. I have contacted google and no reply. Please help me. I just need my business posted. Ive done the post card, and anything else possible. 

I am not a PO Box or a mail box place. Its an actually building with an office.
